No, there isn't a punctuation mistake in the headline above. According to Eurogamer, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is indeed the title for the next game in the annual Call of Duty franchise. Eurogamer's sources also indicated that the game is meant to be a reboot of sorts for the Black Ops franchise, similar to how 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare rebooted the Modern Warfare titles.
Eurogamer has further teased that a series of clues and hints are being introduced into Call of Duty: Warzone, with the mysterious bunkers finally opening up. This game has previously been rumored to be taking place in the Cold War, with Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games initially co-developing before Treyarch stepped in to lead the project.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) has sold extremely well, regularly staying high on the NPD charts months after release. We'll likely see the full reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in the next few weeks. It'll also assuredly release around Holiday 2020, when the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are slated to arrive.
